New Zealand Personal Radio Service

New Zealand’s Personal Radio Service (PRS) and 26 MHz Citizens Band radio are very similar to Australia’s Ultra High Frequency Citizens Band (UHF CB) and 27 MHz Citizens Band services
The New Zealand Governments Ministry Of Commerce introduced the UHF PRS in 1996 to fill the void in freely available short range wireless communications, The UHF band was selected due to it’s ability to withstand atmospheric interference unlike the existing 26 MHz allocation.
Based on Australia’s UHF CB radio, New Zealand’s PRS is a great way for groups and individuals to communicate over short to medium distances free of charge without incurring ongoing operating cost
